Manhattan Dentist Arrested On Drug Trafficking, Child Porn Charges

CHELSEA, Manhattan – A well-known Manhattan dentist was arrested on child pornography charges, and authorities fear there may be more victims.

John Wolf, 59, was taken into custody at his Greenwich Village home on Charles Street Friday morning.

Meanwhile, agents searched his Chelsea office on West 15th Street.

Wolf was charged with possession of child pornography, and investigators fear that underage patients may have been videotaped at his office. They said Wolf used his office as a place to view and distribute the child pornography.

“In recorded conversations with an FBI undercover agent, the defendant admitted that he possessed child pornography and provided the undercover agent with a flash drive containing files depicting child pornography, including videos of children as young as toddlers being raped by adult men,” federal prosecutors said in a news release.

He is also charged with exchanging crystal meth with a known drug dealer for dental work. Prosecutors said Wolf would use some of the meth personally and distribute the rest to others.

Wolf is scheduled to appear before a magistrate in federal court in Brooklyn Friday afternoon.

The FBI is asking anyone with information about this case, or if you believe you or a family member may have been a victim, please contact them at 212-384-5000.
